For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;
that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
2 Corinthians 5:21
"....why weepest thou?
Art thou mourning over thine own corruptions?
Look to thy perfect Lord, and remember, thou art complete in Him; thou art in God's sight as perfect as if thou hadst never sinned; the Lord our Righteousness hath put a divine garment upon thee,
O, I beseech thee,
lay hold on this precious thought,
perfection in Christ!
With thy Savior's garment on, thou art holy as the Holy one.
Christian, let thy heart rejoice, for thou art accepted in the beloved-what hast thou to fear?
.... live near thy Master;
live in the suburbs of the Celestial City."
